Merino keeps you cool when you are warm but a thin layer keeps you plenty warm when its cold. The only downside is the $$/durability, which is why I want 4, because the performance can not be matched.

Cool product dude

  4. scarfs
  5. tubes

What are the benefits and disadvantages to each? People have discussed fogging up googles from Balaclavas, tie-ups that freeze etc

Best neck balaclava

I've been using bandanas for quite sometime and they would get wet and freeze. Not very comfortable. I recently purchased this Neff balaclava which is 96% Polyester and 4% Spandex. Best thing I've ever purchased. Kept me warm and was way dryer than a bandana.

Balaclava - Unisex - Shop
Yeah, I know they have balaclavas too. I just don't like having the 'hole' in a specific place. I like to be able to pull up the face part to wherever suits how cold/shitty the conditions are. On chin if it's not bad, over mouth if its a little colder, over nose if its really cold/sleeting. I know you can do this with air hole masks, but i'll roll with my $15 plain black joint for now
